                  Volcanic Elbrus is the highest mountain of Europe and thus one of the 'Seven Summits'. The two main summits, Elbrus West and East are separated by col (5416m). Normal routes start at Refuge Eleven Hut (also knows as Prijut 11 or Diesel Hut, 4100m) or Barrels Huts (also known as Botchki, 3900m). Barrels Huts can be reached from Baksan valley by ski lifts. Because of its symmetrical shape, Elbrus does not offer a great choice of different routes, most everyone climbs the normal route.
